{Editor's note: Bob Terry wrote "Covering the Terry-Tory"
which appeared in the TFH until his death in 1987. He may
have helped several others working on other than Terry
lines. I am in favor of this project and it would be a
special tribute to Bob.}
     The stone for Robert Terry 1770-1862 is in the Pipe
Creek Baptist cemetery in Penntown, Indiana. The stone is
broken and is being held in place for the photo [not shown].
We have also been informed that the base of the stone has
crumbled and no longer supports the stone, which now lays on
the ground. If something is not done to repair or replace
this stone, eventually it will be removed from the cemetery
and the grave will be lost to future generations.


     This project was started as a memorial to Robert Ward
(Bob) Terry of Cincinnati (1913-1987), who aided so many in
their search for their Terry ancestors. Joan Terry, Bob's
wife has volunteered to locate someone to do the work on
this stone, but nothing can take place until funds for the
job are available.
     We would appreciate your donation for this project, we
have a possible way it can be repaired and hope it can be
carried out, if not then it would probably have to be
replaced with a smaller stone. Preserving the original is what
we hope can be done.
     If you will donate to this project please make your
check payable to Arta Blonshine and I will be responsible
for all donations received by me. I will also acknowledge
every one and when the job is done each donor will receive a
copy of the paid bill.
     If for any reason this project fails, then all
donations will be returned with an explanation. Please make
your donations as soon as possible so work can start as soon
as weather permits.
     This stone was very special to R. W. "Bob" Terry and I
am sure having it repaired would be the most fitting
memorial we could give Bob.

                      Oakton VA 22124
     I had originally planned to do an article, proving all
of the children of Nathaniel TERRY and Sarah ROYALL, and the
children of their children, but now I feel we must correct
Nathaniel TERRY Jr.'s descent first.
     Nathaniel TERRY was born 3 Dec 1755 in Halifax County,
Virginia the third son of Nathaniel TERRY and Sarah ROYALL.
He married Ann THOMPSON, daughter of William THOMPSON and
Rachel COLEMAN. She was born about 1767, as in her pension
application she says she is 84 years old in 1859. They
married 7 Dec 1784. Nathaniel TERRY died 8 Feb 1837 and his
obituary is printed in the National Banner and Nashville
Whig 3 Mar 1837.
     Ann (Thompson) TERRY died between Feb and Jun 1860. She
was 93 years of age at her death. Their children were:
     William Thompson TERRY m. Elizabeth WATLINGTON 2 Jul
1806 in Halifax County, Virginia. This couple left 10
provable children. He was born about 1786 and died 22 Nov
1854 in Kentucky. Elizabeth (Watlington) TERRY who was born
about 1786 was still alive in the 1870 census in the
household of my ancestor Coleman and Lucy H. Jordon TERRY.

(Tradition says she was the first burial in the Jordan
Cemetery 1879.)
     James H. TERRY born about 1802 and died unmarried, 7
Nov 1854. His will is in book H & G, page 350 Logan County,
     * Benjamin TERRY born about 1790 married Rebecca
STANLEY in Person County, North Carolina, 13 Jun 1813. He
was probably the father of the grandchild of James H. S.
TERRY who was mentioned in Nathaniel's Will. His mother
remarried Robert SHANKLIN in Todd County, Kentucky in 1827.
[Proof is in Deed Book E, page 213 Todd County, Kentucky, 19
Nov 1827].
     Joseph R. TERRY which we covered in the last issue
{December 1987 TFH} b. 17 May 1792 m (1) 12 Apr 1816 Sarah
David Smith m (2) Cumberland Co. KY 1 Jul 1850 Bethenia
Phelps. I can document four of his children.
     Nathaniel Dickerson TERRY born 10 Nov 1794 and died 8
Feb 1861. He married first in Virginia, 23 Mar 1814,
Elizabeth LIGON. He married second in Kentucky, 16 Mar 1836,
Malvina Ann HAYES. I have this bible record and can prove
his children.
     Robert Jefferson TERRY born 23 Apr 1800 died 27 Nov
1859 married in Kentucky, 29 Apr 1824, Rebecca Mumford
KEESEE. Have his bible, can prove his children.
     *  Sarah B. TERRY born about 1804,  deceased at the
time of her father's will, married in Halifax County,
Virginia 15 Feb 1819. She was the mother of Walter and Ann
T. BOYD mentioned as grandchildren in Nathaniel's will.
(Have enclosed proof.]
     Lucy H. C. TERRY born about 1807 married first Powhatan
TERRY. She had four daughters of this marriage. [Can prove
this]. She married second Dr. John CHASTAIN in Logan County,
Kentucky, 1847. They had no children. She died after 1880.
     *  Mary Ann Martha TERRY born about 1810 married only
once in 1832 to Lawrence Hall. The other marriage picked up
by Edna Bushnell in TERRY RECORDS OF VIRGINIA was a daughter
of Johns and Sarah Neal TERRY. A different family. The 1850
Census of Todd County, Kentucky lists four children.
     Hope you can figure this out okay. The proof is to show
that there was no daughter Elizabeth and that there was a
deceased son Benjamin. Also, not a previous marriage for
Mary Ann Martha Hall.
* This is correcting earlier mistakes.

                       VIRGINIA NOTES
     The following was published in the Virginia Genealogist
by J. F. Dorman and was submitted by Elaine Couch, 6848
Sarah St., Temperance MI 48182. It is interesting because it
names several Terrys and allied families. --- Editor.
                       O o o O o o O
THOMAS TERRY. 31.15.5, 1775, Petersburg Store. He lives in
Pittsylvania. His circumstances are rather doubtful but it
is believed his estate is sufficient for the payment of his
debts. No steps have been taken to compel payment and the
justice is not admitted. Source: British Mercantile Claims _
1775 to 1803 noted in Vol. 25, #1, Jan-March 1981 The
Virginia Genealogist page 34 by John Frederick Dorman.
JOSEPH TERRY. 0.13.10, Pittsylvania Store. There is one
Joseph TERRY who lives in Pittsylvania and who is very able
but he not the debtor. Another man of that name died many
years since and left estate sufficient and Beverly Barksdale
administered on his estate and gave good security. The
estate is now divided but still the executor and his
security would be liable for any debt which could be
properly ascertained. The justice of the debt is not
admitted. British Mercantile Claims _ 1775 to 1803 noted in
Vol. 25, #1, Jan-March 1981 The Virginia Genealogist page 42
by John Frederick Dorman.
WILLIAM TERRY. 6.11.7, 16 April 1774, Pittsylvania Store. He
removed many years since to South Carolina and is said to be
insolvent. His circumstances were doubtful at the conclusion
of the war. British Mercantile Claims _ 1775 to 1803 noted
in Vol. 25, #1, Jan-March 1981 The Virginia Genealogist page

WILLIAM TERRY. He denies the account is just. His estate is
fully sufficient to satisfy.
OLIVER TERRY. He died in North Carolina with estate
sufficient to satisfy all creditors. It is unknown in what
North Carolina county he lived, but probably Caswell.
PETER TERRY. He is able to discharge the claim against him.


MOSES TERRY. He died in Georgia insolvent. Whether he was
insolvent at the close of the war is unknown.
NATHANIEL TERRY. He is solvent.
COL. NATHANIEL TERRY. He died in March 1780 possessed of
sufficient estate to satisfy the debt. His son WILLIAM TERRY
qualified as executor on the state and it is now sufficient
to discharge the claim. The store was kept by John Calder,
factor for Alexr. Spiers, John Bowman & Co., and special
contract was made by Calder and Nathaniel TERRY relative to
the store houses &c where the debt was contracted. TERRY was
to build the store houses and board the store keepers seven
years, for which he was to receive L100 per annum. A
considerable part of the claim was for articles used in
building the houses. The Company had the use of the houses
as long as they continued in that country but the store
keepers did not continue to board with Terry more than two
years. The houses since the departure of Alexr. Spiers, John
Bowman & Co. have been of little or no use to Terry or his
family. Terry always claimed a credit on account of the
contract which has not been allowed him. The executor lives
in Halifax County. British Mercantile Claims _ 1775 to 1803
noted in Vol. 26, #3, July - September 1982 The Virginia
Genealogist page 202 by John Frederick Dorman.
MOSES TERRY. 32.0.0 1/4. Halifax Store. He was insolvent at
the conclusion of the war and has been so ever since.

#3, July - September 1982 The Virginia Genealogist page 202

DAVID TERRY. 2.16.10 1/2. He died solvent in Pittsylvania.
His estate is very sufficient to pay all his debts. British
Mercantile Claims _ 1775 to 1803 noted in Vol. 26, #3, July
- September 1982 The Virginia Genealogist page 204 by John

THOMAS BUCKINGHAM. 2.12.9. Died in Tennessee in very good
Circumstances. British Mercantile Claims _ 1775 to 1803
noted in Vol. 26, #4, Oct - Dec 1982 The Virginia
Genealogist page 288 by John Frederick Dorman.
JAMES DANIEL SENR. 0.15.5. Dead. He was always insolvent and
died so.
JAMES DANIEL (son of Richard and Agness (TERRY?) d/o Daniel
and Christian?) 68.11.7 1/2. Died before the conclusion of
the war. He was possessed of a small estate but not
sufficient to satisfy the debt.
WILLIAM DANIEL. 3.0.8. Was insolvent in 1783. Since that he
has removed from Halifax, unknown where.


TERRY DANIEL. 12.5.4 1/2. Lately died solvent. He was always
so to the time of his death. David Daniel is his executor
and is possessed of sufficient estate to satisfy the debt.
WILLIAM DANIEL. 40.4.8 1/4. Is now and always has been
solvent. He lives in Rockingham Co. North Carolina.
RICHARD DANIEL SENR. 75.6.6. Died before the conclusion of
the war, solvent. His estate is now divided among his
several children.
JAMES HILL. 1134.1.8 1/2. Died before 1783 solvent. JOSEPH
TERRY in right of his wife Sarah has administered on his
estate. British Mercantile Claims _ 1775 to 1803 noted in
Vol. 26, #4, Oct - Dec 1982 The Virginia Genealogist page
291 by John Frederick Dorman.
RICHARD DANIEL dec`d. 7.2.7. Died before 1783., solvent.
JAMES DANIEL Jnr. 6.3.10 1/2. Was insolvent in 1783.
                       O o o O o o O
CHARLES BIBB. Louisa Store. Now lives in Louisa, a very poor
man. There has been but little variation in his residence
and circumstances from some period before the peace til the
present. He lives in a cabin which I have lately seen on the
side of the road where he keeps a tippling house which seems
to be his only means of support.
WILLIAM HENRY, Fluvanna. 30.11.3 1/2. Richmond Store. He
died in Fluvanna during the war. He left a very good estate
and the widow but no child. His brother Patrick Henry
administered on his estate and died last year in Charlotte
County. The estate was distributed between the widow and
next of kin during the war and before the peace the widow
removed to Bedford County where she married _______ Holt.
THOMAS KEY, Albemarle. 32.13.5 3/4, open account, Richmond
store. He moved to Georgia about the commencement of the war
in very good circumstances. About eight years ago he was
inspector of tobacco in the town of Augusta and was reputed
to be solvent.
REBECCA BURTON, Fluvanna. 29.2.9 3/4, open account,
Albemarle Store. There were two persons of this name at the
time this debt was contracted, Rebecca Burton, widow of Wm.
Burton, and Rebecca Burton, one of his daughters. The widow
married Michael Thomas of Albemarle County and is since dead
and her husband Michael Thomas has become insolvent since
the peace. The daughter married George Thompson with whom
she removed to Kentucky about 1791. They carried with them a
large estate. They now live near Danville, still reputed
solvent. In the remarks of the creditor it is said Rebecca

Burton married William Henry but it is a mistake; he married
Polly Burton.

                   KENTUCKY TERRY FAMILY
          I received a letter from Mrs. Louis S. Sipple 1354
Clermontville Laurel Rd., New Richmond OH 45157 indicating
they had done a narrative type newsletter on Terry a family.
In her newsletter she indicates her William Terry settled in
Harrison County KY 1810 and his wife was Polly ________.
Their children were William, Obe, John, James, Thomas, Lewis
and Sarah Terry. The genealogy was researched by the
following persons:
Mrs. Helen B. Sorrell, 439 East Pike St., Cynthiana KY 41031
Mrs. Vivian T. Marx, P.O. Box 126, Cynthiana, KY 41031.
Mrs. Louis Sipple, 1354 Clermontville, Laurel Rd., New
Richmond OH 45157.
     I thought I had seen most Terry families in Kentucky
but this is a new one. William Mills Terry the first son was
born 10 Feb 1817 of Harrison Co. KY and d 20 Feb 1890 bur.
Battle Grove, Cynthiana, KY. He m (1) Mrs. Elizabeth
(Muscelman) Lemmons 22 Dec 1863 m (2) Mary (Molly) A.
Hedgers 19 Mar 1874.
I looked at the Kentucky Marriages I have and there does not
seem to be a match. One son, John Terry, appears in later
records of Hillsborough, Hill Co. TX according to a note by
TFH member Ralph Terry of Coleman, TX. Perhaps he may have
some leads on this family. Does anyone have a lead on this

family? The items in the newsletter contained several
generations past these children but did not pertain to
Terrys directly. Would share the information with those
interested. --- The Editor.

died, Morgan Green TERRY moved to Shawnee, OK. I understand
he is buried near that area. My grandfather John W. TERRY
lived in McCloud and is buried in Shawnee.

Dear Mr. Terry,
     Have seen your ad's in the Genealogical Helper Magazine
many times and have decided to take a chance and write to
you about a little problem I have. It concerns an unknown
TERRY who married a Ceriah or Seriah or Cheriah DAVIS,
daughter of Richard DAVIS. Richard seems to have lived
either all or most of his life in Caroline Co. VA but lucky
for me he went to Granville Co. N.C. where he died and left
a will. (Had he died in Caroline Co. no will would exist

today). He died in Oct. 1761 and Ceriah was already married
but her husbands Christian name is not mentioned.
     With you being a TERRY Historian I am hoping you have
run across this group and can perhaps help me out. My main
interest is the DAVIS line but I would like to know who the
daughters married.
     As son of Richard DAVIS, Absolom, named a daughter
Chiriah and a son Joseph Terry DAVIS. This might be a clue
but I haven't been able to find anything conclusive.
     If you can help me out, I would very much appreciate
the information.
                                   Leslie Watson
[1] Jay, This is a copy of the letter from Mrs. Watson. I
think it is significant because of the inability to read the
signature of the 14th child's name in Richard DAVIS's will
and the mention of Augustine's child as Joseph Terry DAVIS.
Researchers attempting to connect Benjamin & Elizabeth IRBY
TERRY or James and Diana ROYALL TERRY with earlier
generations may find this information from Henrico Co. VA
records helpful. About 1687 William IRBY married the widow
of Richard MASCALL and daughter of John MAIDEN. Mrs.
Katherine ISHAM, of Henrico, whose first husband was Joseph
ROYALL, in her will dated 1687, gives a legacy to her
grandson Maiden MASCALL. Replies to Mike Terry, Terry Family

I have my line one Mary (Polly) Terry whose marriage bond is
dated 8 Apr 1819 Stephen Yates in Pittsylvania Co. VA. The
bond was between Stephen Yates and David Terry and was for
his intermarriage with Polly Terry. I have located them in
the 1850 census, that saying that Mary was  50, indicating a
birth of about 1800. However, I located a book published by
Betha P. (Yeatts) Faust on the Yates Family History. On page
172, I quote relating to marriages: "Jan 5, 1799 David Terry
and Littica Nash, Bondsman Tarpley Yeats, Parents John and
Anna Nash (Their daughter Polly (Mary) Terry married Stephen
Yates 8 Apr 1819)". She further states in her book that Mary
Terry was born 1 Dec 1796 and died 29 July 1876. This not
only conflicts with the census data, but also would indicate
illegitimacy. I would appreciate any help you can give. Sue

lived in Montgomery, AL where Myrtle still resides. Have you
